Foothills Parkway offers very dark skies and is only a short drive (~30-45 min.) away from Knoxville. The general public is invited! Proceed to Maryville via any of the major highways (see MAP 1 above) and get on US Hwy 321 northbound. At the far end of the hamlet of Walland (8 miles from Maryville), turn right onto the Foothills Parkway. The turn is well-marked on Hwy 321.
About 10 miles ahead you will encounter a speed zone and the Flats Rd / Look Rock Campground intersection. As shown in the map below, SMAS uses the second overlook southwest of the Flats Road intersection.
